Growing up on Saturday Evening Post,
And long talks with you are things that I miss the most.
You taught me reason with the rhyme
Strange how those years are swallowed by time.
Oh how I miss you - Father of Mine
Thanksgiving dinner and watching the football game
Playing outside and hearing you call my name
You whistled once, I always ran
I wish you could see me now that I'm a man
Oh how I miss you - Father of Mine

How the years go by, how they all seem to race away.
What I wouldn't give if I could only see your face today.
Now that I'm older, I suddenly realize
The truth in what you said. Dad you were so wise.
I should have listened, but I was young.
I disobeyed, but I was still your son
Oh how I miss you - Father of Mine
If you saw me now would you say that you were proud of your son today?
Oh how I miss you - Father of Mine
